Chicago – The long career of Jamie Lee Curtis has taken her from early “scream queen” status to pitching yogurt. But what is lesser known about the popular actress is that she is a child’s book author of note. “My Brave Year of Firsts” is her tenth collaboration with illustrator Laura Cornell, and she was at Anderson’s Bookshop (Naperville, Ill) last autumn to read excerpts and autograph the book.
“My Brave Year of Firsts” lovingly portrays a child heroine named Frankie, who is trying out so many things for the very first time. This book joins the other Curtis/Cornell titles, including “Tell Me Again About the Night I was Born,” “Is There a Human Race?,” and “Today I Feel Silly, and Other Moods That Make My Day.” Jamie Lee Curtis has been married to comic actor Christopher Guest since 1984, and has two children.
